Artis Opus - Series S: Brush Set


Recommended Posts

Surprised I did not see this mentioned yet.



So my question here once people look at it is this really worth it?  The cost seems high given you can get Rosemary & Co or other company Kolinsky brushes far cheaper.  What makes these worth the extra cost?  I know you get the brush soap (which I would think most of us have already) and a nice case (not really needed perhaps).  But seems like $65ish with shipping for 4 brushes seems high.

Well, you can search for his LinkedIn, and, while he's been in the miniature painting business since 2013, I'm not seeing any brush manufacturing experience. This is also a First Created project.


I'm happy with my brushes, but I'm cranking out orcs for the tabletop, not painting for display.

I have been looking for a KS like this but that does seem kind of steep.  I bought 4 Rosemary & Co awhile ago and it cost a little over $40 (if I remember correctly) which most of was shipping.  I love them and if I wanted more sable brushes I would probably go back through them. 


I also have my eye on some decent looking synthetic brushes on Amazon just to round out my collection...not that I need them I have about 20-30.  I'm getting almost as bad with brushes as I am miniatures.

As best I can tell the chunkier handle is there special feature? If someone likes their current brushes, but finds the handles a bit too skinny, my recommendation would probably be a bit of green stuff.

Having been burned badly by the first Games & Gears Kickstarter project, I'll wait for a review of a production set from someone that I trust.  And, I also don't need the really small sizes.



This. Very much this.

Any details on the specific dimensions of the brushes? Specific lengths, width, belly size/shape, etc.


Remembering browsing through Rosemary & Co, brush dimensions were all over the place depending on what you wanted, and it had little relation to brush sizes as I could find a size 0 in one line bigger than a size 1 in another.


Otherwise, yeah, better wait for reviews *after* the campaign, at the higher retail price. Makes me wonder who the target market is as there are plenty of alternatives and variation.

So they've reached over £111,000 ($155,000USD) at the time of this writing.


This is far higher than whatever Games & Gears or Wamp got for their own brush KS campaigns.


Is there some special magic to these brushes that we're missing, or is it just good marketing?

      A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work.
      The Gnome Guard
      “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden.
      One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection.
      I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.


      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!


      Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns:
      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):
